A Birthday, Anniversary, and a SALE!!!

Tomorrow is the 1st Blogiversary of Hart’s Desire Creations!  It also happens to be my 31st {shhh…don’t tell anyone!} Birthday! Last year about this time I was having a mini life crisis turning the big 3-0. I felt like my life was great but I was still missing some sort of creative outlet. I’ve  always been a creative person, but I was feeling like I also needed to share that with other creatives out there. So on a whim I logged into wordpress and published my first post. 178 posts later here we are!   A lot has changed over the last year. I’m now ok with being in my 30s, my son has gotten one year older {maybe 15 years older if you count the attitude he can sometimes show}, my house has changed A LOT in the past year, and I’m in a very happy place.  Life is GOOD!

One of the best things that’ happened since I started this blog is the opportunities that have come my way.  It’s amazing what putting yourself “out there” on the internet can do for you. Don’t get me wrong, it can be crazy scary and you sometimes get negative feedback, but for me, it’s been a positive. I encourage anyone in the same predicament I was last year to get over the fear and just ‘do it’. You never know what might lie ahead! I’ve had the opportunity to work with some great people for creative collaborations.  For furniture re-design, interior decorating, party planning, and even starting a fun ‘craft day’ for some awesome women that I am glad to be able to call my friends.

But what I’m most excited about right now is the photography opportunities that have started coming my way in the last few months. I never, ever imagined I would be taking pictures for OTHER people. To be able to freeze time so in the future they can look back on their happy times makes me so happy. To see their joy and love and be able to capture that in pictures has been so rewarding and fulfilling. I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me and I hope you all will come along with me!
